Republicans got what they wanted. House to vote on impeachment hearings
#1
WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives will vote this week to formalize impeachment inquiry procedures after weeks of resisting a full House vote and unrelenting attacks by Republicans.

The vote on the resolution by Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., is expected Thursday. The text of the resolution was not immediately available, but it will lay out the next steps in the inquiry, including establishing procedures for public hearings, transferring the investigation to the Judiciary Committee for potential articles of impeachment and outlining rights of President Donald Trump and his attorneys.

They asked for it and they got it. Now there will be a vote to give the hearings more legitimacy and perhaps even open them to the public.

But somehow I think they won't like having it in the open.

What is an impeachment inquiry? A look at the impeachment process

Excerpt...

If the House votes to impeach an official, the case must then be presented to the Senate, which will hold a trial. The Senate needs a two-thirds majority to find the official guilty and remove him or her from office.

While the Senate trial has the power to oust a president from office, it does not have the power to send a president to jail.

One important factor to keep in mind about the outcomes of a Senate impeachment trial is that neither of the previous such trials has ever reached a conviction -- they both ended in acquittals -- so there is no precedent where the vice president or anyone else in the line of succession has taken over.

That's what happens after the inquiry. The inquiry is simply gathering information to decide if they will impeach. And that information would be used during the impeachment if it goes that far.


But I don't think that will happen any time soon. This is a show because they know they don't have the votes in the Senate. They intend to cast as much shade as they can before the election and gain enough votes in the Senate in case Trump wins again.

Nope.
I think the Democrats are dumb enough to get this thing through the House.
They will do it like The Affordable Health Care Act. That was...
Wham, Bam, Thank you, Ma'am.
It will go right down party lines. Maybe a Rhino or two for their good measure.
A complete mockery of The Founder's intent.
And the charges?
All subjective stupidity just like the SJW mindset.

Have fun, Nancy.
Slicing the belly is important but do raise the head so the guy with the
sword can take off your head.

We have different understandings of the phrase.
The dirty Dems are gonna make this monster grow powerful legs with the MSM
and get the most political hay as possible. In the process, they make a complete
mockery of The Constitution.
In fact, I see CNN going Impeachment 24/7/365. The low information viewers do
not understand the process. Only what is spoon fed to them.

I agree with @Alian that these bastards will hope for enough change in the 2020 Senate
membership that they can force it all the way through. Remember, there are a lot
of never Trumpers and RINOS in the Senate. The ONLY thing holding them back
is they must face their voters. Get a few more Mitts in there and we have a problem.

No, it is alive and growing. They see a path. It's obvious to me so they must see it too.

I also think that perhaps the Republicans stormed the hearings hoping for exactly this result because their owners want Trump gone too.
